It does seem to me that if he was so proud of being a Jew he might have changed his name to something other than Douglas when he went into the movies though.
And I quit assuming that living to be 101 was such a good thing when my mom recently died at the age of 95. Everyone who didn't know better commented that it was so wonderful she had such a long life.
It's only a good thing if you can still see and walk and hear and feed yourself and go to the bathroom by yourself and recognize old friends when they come to visit and if you have enough money to have private care outside an institution. If you are able to keep your dignity and do some things to maintain some independence, I guess living that long is good. But to be honest, I've never known anyone wealthy enough OR healthy enough to live happily into the 90's or 100 year range.
Science can now keep us alive but it can't keep us healthy. Until it can, I would never, ever want to live to be 95 like my mom did. She would have been much happier had she died several years earlier, and I suspect a lot of centenarians would feel the same way if they were honest.
